Re: Parking Fine

A friend of mine (yes i have at least one) called me the other day - his boss had been sent several and thought the work vans had been parking incorrectly. He almost fell for it until my mate did some googling.

Apparently, the company named is legit (CPS E... N...), but scammers have faked the emails

Image of what the email looks like is as per - https://myonlinesecurity.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/CPS-Enforcement-Parking-Allegation-Advice-...

Re: Parking Fine

Yeah I noticed about 3 of these in my spam folder earlier this week, just ignored them.

HOW would a parking fine company get my email address? Obvious spam.

Re: Parking Fine

Dead give away, is the use of, or should I say, the mis-use of the english language/grammatical expression..

 

obviously someone who was not taught English Language, and relies on a translator ... probablyu two way... i.e. original english to forren, and then back to english...

Re: Parking Fine

I tend to get suspicious when I'm told my non-existent car was illegally parked in an area I've never been to and could I please pay the fine to a bank in Lagos.

@shutter  I once heard a story about UN interpreters just for fun decided to translate the expression "out of sight, out of mind" from English to English via the other five official languages of the UN in a certain order.  It came back as "invisible insane".

Re: Parking Fine

I'm not sure any parking company has the authority to issue a fine or the ability to enforce it.

Re: Parking Fine

Strangely enough there's a minor row going on in the Derby newspaper about the wife of the Council Leader's wife "accidentally' parking in a disabled parking spot and later on double yellow lines. According to the chief these reports are an invasion of privacy. I reckon it is more likely a case of animal farm "more equal".

Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

In this "fair and equal society", there are always people who are more equal than others getting fairer treatment...

 

That aside, I've had a few of these parking fine things dropping into my spam trap, quite amusing really seeing as I don't presently own a car... Grin

Never mind the parking fine, what about the bigamy?

Re: Parking Fine

I think it all boils down to common sense really, no parking enforcement agency will email you a parking violation notice, it just doesn't happen. The same goes for your bank, they'll never email you and ask you to submit your personal account details and PIN number to unlock a frozen account. Amazing people are still dumb enough to get caught by these kind of scams.

Re: Parking Fine

Amazing but not surprising as many people will comply with what they perceive as authority from whatever source. Just human nature for some. Check out the Milgram experiment.

@Minivanman

Yes very true! Some people are idiots!

There's a good film about that experiment, I think I saw this a couple of years ago when it came out.
